Majola heads to Labour Court

Johannesburg - Suspended Cricket South Africa CEO Gerald Majola will on Monday turn to the Labour Court in Johannesburg to challenge his suspension and the establishment of the Nicholson Inquiry, according to EWN report.

Majola withdrew from his official CSA disciplinary inquiry last week saying it was unlawful.

He was suspended in March, after the Nicholson Inquiry found he contravened the Companies Act by failing to disclose bonuses he and his staff received.

The long running bonus scandal followed the 2009 Indian Premier League T20 tournament, which was hosted by South Africa.

Majola's lawyers confirmed last week that they would file papers in the Labour Court on Monday.

The respondents are expected to include CSA, Sport and Recreation Minister Fikile Mbalula and the Nicholson Inquiry.

Majola believes the minister unlawfully intervened in the bonus saga, when the matter had already been closed by South Africa's Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc).

He argues that for this reason, the inquiry never should have been set up.

CSA is proceeding with Majola's disciplinary hearing in his absence, and the process is expected to be finalised this week.
